TILT is available on Netflix and iTunes!

I've waited for this day for a long time. TILT: The Battle to Save Pinball is one of my all-time favorite documentaries, but it hasn't been widely available. Until now! TILT can now be found on


It doesn't matter if you are a pinball fan or not; I wasn't a big pinball person when I first saw the film. The story told by TILT has got everything a documentary is supposed to have; interesting facts and beautifully illustrated background history, interviews with key contributors (like the guy who invented putting flippers at the bottom of the play field), and a story with an endearing human element to tie everything together.

Trailer for "TILT: The Battle to Save Pinball" from Greg Maletic on Vimeo.

Also check out Greg's Vimeo channel, there are some very cool additional clips there.

If you use Netflix or iTunes, go check it out IMMEDIATELY, and don't forget to add the bonus DVD to your Netflix queue. It's got some really great extras. Just do it, have I ever steered you wrong before? Swing by here and let me know what you think afterwards, and if you'd like to buy a copy to own after that, you can get it on the official website.

BSG The Plan teaser trailer

So I thought the Caprica series was interesting, but it just didn't grab me as Battlestar, because it WASN'T Battlestar.

Geeks of Doom posted the teaser trailer for the BSG "The Plan" movie though, and here it is!

Wiebe LIVE record attempt June 2

How random, I just stumbled across G4's coverage of Steve Wiebe going for the Donkey Kong record again, but this time it's live via webcam. VERY COOL!

Watch live video from G4TV - Steve Wiebe Donkey Kong Cam on Justin.tv

You can see the live chat that goes along with it here.

Update: 6:32 PM EST - OH SNAP! He's on his 3rd (and possibly final) try, somewhere under 200k I think, and the power just went out! You can hear them though. This is epic, I tell you, it's a SAGA...
